With many stand-up shows postponed due to the continuous impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, many great comedians will finally be bringing their shows to Aberdeen (and Inverness) in 2022.

Aberdeen International Comedy Festival will also make its much-anticipated return from October 6 to 16 and will see stars such as Jack Dee, Milton Jones, Harry Hill and Sofie Hagen perform for their north-east fans.

Here’s our pick of top 10 comedy gigs coming our way in 2022.

The Scottish funnyman, who previously headlined Aberdeen International Comedy Festival, was meant to bring his new tour Hubris to the Music Hall on Sunday November 28.

Tickets: This show is now sold out.
